Trading in


I

Eventually
a face will sit comfortably
beside mine
both our pair of eyes
in unison
staring into nothing
and loving every second

Looking through windows
watching the details swim
mixing into each other

doing the same
blending our brains
to create an amusing

III

One day
we will find doors
with locks
revealing a closet which
is curiously comfortable

and in we go
residing in that
desolate space

IV

Looking for other faces
and voices

trading in
our old smiles

for a bus ride
in the ocean
to see the depth
and the darkness
of...

what we hate

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
